  • The Harbour...new programme.

    Hello all
    Next Monday, 7.30 pm, will see the start of a short series of four episodes about Cork Harbour, it's environs and the people who work in, on and under it, including the NS. From an article in today's Irish Times.

      It'll be interesting to see the civilian side of the harbour.
      They do a huge amount of work and its about time they get the recognition they deserve.

                It was a pretty good all round view of "my home by the lee". Looking forward to the next episode.

                      Hi all
                      I saw it and enjoyed it, apart from the nasal whining of Jimmy Crowley....the Harbour must rake in a fortune from pilot fees! Is it really that difficult to navigate? If he has to bring a ship all the way up to Tivoli, does the next ship have to wait until he gets back?!...needless to say, it'll always be sunny on the programme. No rainy days in Cobh, watching the ratings and the hardshaws exchanging bootleather outside the pubs...
                      Regards

                        The Pilot travels with the ship to its moorings. The Pilot boat does not follow. It merely acts as a taxi for the Pilot, who usually returns from the city quays by taxi. There are 2 Pilot boats in Cork, and a pool of about 20-30 pilots, who work as required. All pilots are qualified watchkeeping officers.
                        Its not the navigation thats the difficult part, but the changing tidal currents that vary depending on many conditions.

                          Hi Goldie
                          Thanks for that....the bit about the "Aud" was interesting. It looked very clear for such a depth.

                            It can be, if the tides are right. Some times you cant even see your hand in front of your face, mainly thanks to the dredger dumping his cargo as he leaves roches pt and not in the designated dumping zone. Shes deep enough to limit sport diving on her to 15min. The amount of ammo and rifles still down there is incredible. Would have made things very interesting if she landed.

                            Missed the show on monday, any info on repeats, or if someone recorded it?
